Keen to show those beastly Flash-hating rotters at Apple just how useful the technology is for tablets and netbooks, Adobe has knocked out a promo videos showing off its capabilities.
Interestingly, HP’s new Slate device is used throughout the demo, and the combo of Windows 7 and Flash seems to add up to a seductive multimedia package, with Flash games, videos, AIR applications and other treats flying across the screen with gusto.
HP’s as-yet-unreleased Slate tablet PC looks set to come with all the usual tablety gizmos – think: pinch-to-zoom, multi-touch screen, video support, maps, newspaper downloads etc – as well as being rumoured to come with hardware-accelerated Flash for some extra whizz.
We’ve included HP’s short promo video below and you can catch a glimpse of the Slate’s fairly bog standard onscreen keyboard in action.
Although we’re still sold on Microsoft’s Courier tablet/book (if it ever arrives), HP’s Slate seems a fairly nimble package, and if it’s priced right, could be a contender.
